Richland One to Hold Round 2 Application Period for Magnet Programs March 9-April 30

 

 

Richland One parents will have another opportunity to enroll their children in one of the district’s magnet programs for the 2020-2021 school year. Round Two of the application period will be open March 9-April 30.

 

During Round Two, students may apply to programs with slots that were not filled during the Round One application period in December and January. Slots are still available in the Montessori Middle Level Program; Career Magnets (elementary, middle and high school); Language Immersion Program; Health Sciences Magnet; and Richland One Middle College. However, enrollment is closed for the district’s elementary Montessori programs, Medical Magnet Academy and Virtual School.

 

All Richland One students, regardless of their school attendance zone, may apply to enroll in a magnet program within the district, unless the program is designated as one that is zoned for certain attendance areas. Admission is based on successful completion of the application process, which may include attending an information session and meeting qualifying criteria.

 

The magnet programs application link is posted on the district’s website www.richlandone.org. Students and parents who would like more information about the district’s magnet programs can go to richlandone.org/choice or contact Dr. Erica Fields at 231-6799 or erica.fields@richlandone.org.
